The Kunbi saree has perhaps been the biggest revelation of the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week so far. The Goan designer has created something out of the box, something totally unique which people not only in Goa will wear but even saree lovers around the world will appreciate the very first Goan made saree.

The original Kunbi saree was mainly worn by the Kunbi tribe and thus Wendell wanted to change that perspective by introducing soft pastel shades with irregular designs flowing along the saree, giving the whole collection a very modern and an elegant look.

The eco-friendly handloom made from vegetable dye has its origins from the Kunbi tribe which consists of aboriginals who settled in Canacona taluk of South Goa. Wendell's love for Goa and his dedication to build Goa's cultural heritage has made this work possible. His saree collection will now compete with other Indian states that have their own type of traditional saree.

Goa must be proud and Wendell must be delighted as it took nearly seven years of extensive research in sourcing the weavers, working with the tribals and then creating designs that mixed well with today's contemporary style of clothing.
